Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) (a) The Family Court may make orders in favour of grandparents to assume the guardianship of their grandchildren. The ACT Government has no registration scheme of grandparents granted such orders.

Where the ACT Children Court makes a care and protection order in favour of the Chief Executive, the Chief Executive may place children and young people with kinship carers, including grandparents. This information is kept on an individual child's file. The ACT Government has no consolidated record of grandparents granted such placements.

(2) Where a grandparent, who is a kinship carer of a child under care and protection orders requests support, the information would be entered on the individual child's file. The ACT Government has no consolidated record of Grandparents receiving support.
